The Mega Millions jackpot has grown to $1.348 Billion after 25 rollovers before finally being scooped on January 13, 2023. This historic draw, which took place on a Friday the 13th, was a lucky draw for the owner(s) of the single winning ticket.
Indeed, only one Mega Millions ticket purchased at a Hometown Gas & Grill in Lebanon (Maine) featured all the winning numbers: 30-43-45-46-61 & Mega Ball 14. This ticket brings the Mega Millions jackpot to Maine for the first time.
Fourteen players also came close as they guessed all the main numbers but not the Mega Ball, which means they won the Mega Millions second prize of $1 Million. Sadly none of these players had ticked the Megaplier option, which would have doubled their prize.
Even though we are impatient to learn more about the owner(s) of this Friday the 13th lucky ticket, it may take a while as the claim can be made in a year. It may also be that we won’t learn much more as Mega Millions winners can claim their prize under a trust in Maine. We will have to wait and see…
